SRP Community Solar participants offset their energy with power generated at
Copper Crossing Solar Ranch, in Florence, Ariz. This state-of-the-art solar
energy facility is expected to produce enough to power about 3,700 customers’
homes each year.
Copper Crossing went online in Sept. 2011. It features 66,000 solar panels spread
across 144 acres and helps Phoenix area residents, businesses and schools in SRP
territory offset their energy usage with solar.
Utility-scale solar power facilities generate more energy
Panels at Copper Crossing have an advantage because they are attached to a tracking
system that follows the sun’s path. By moving throughout the day they produce up to
40% more energy than a stationary rooftop system.
